The Vets Plan...
Possibly, Butterscotch's diabetes will be controllable with "special diet"; at this point, insulin injections may be too drastic as a treatment. The diet will be tried for 7-days; then sugar levels in blood and urine will be measured once again. If you are a cat and you live long enough without being hit by a car or eaten by a coyote, you could get diabetes, kitty-kat-kancer or other diseases of the elderly. Scotchie is at least 13 years old; exclusively a "house cat" by her own choice--she will not even venture out to the deck for supervised play.
